An enriching Ready for School programme gives every child the opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence to thrive in school and beyond.

I have over 15 years of experience working with children and most of that time I have been in a supervisory position. I have worked in the voluntary, statutory and private sector. I have completed an SVQ Level 3 in Childcare and Education, a BA in Early Childhood Studies and courses with the Open University in Working with Families and Child Development. I believe that continuous learning is important and I encourage my team to attend training.
I have worked with Bright Horizons as a manager since 2008. In February 2015 I transferred from Cramond Nursery to Morton Mains Nursery where I love the outside opportunities for the children.
We try to work with the children and their families and their participation in the life of the centre is very important to me. I think it is great to see the children grow and develop into confident individuals.
My name is Shirley McCormack and I have been with Bright horizons at Morton Mains for eight years as the senior of the Baby room and now as Lead Practitioner too. I have worked in Childcare for over 30 years, 25 of those in a senior position, I have The HNC in Childcare and I am currently studying for my Level 4 childcare qualification.
The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
